2003 Events

Marine Matters booths graced many community events in 2003. Fun activities to test knowledge of marine creatures, crafts for young ones, posters, information and publications were brought to the Islands communities. Thanks to Fisheries and Oceans Canada, we were also able to bring in a ‘giant fish’ tent for marine storytelling and fun! For Oceans Day, we hosted intertidal and dock walks in Masset, Tlell, Queen Charlotte City and Sandspit - followed by fun and informative ocean activities for families.

This year, Intertidal Explorations day camps were funded through the Gwaii Trust Society and World Wildlife Fund Canada. In each of 3 communities - Tlell, Masset & Queen Charlotte City - young people came out to discover what lives in their front yards, and learn about ocean life and stewardship through hands-on activities and crafts.

Cliff Robinson, a marine researcher from Parks Canada Western Canada Service Centre in Vancouver, was our only speaker this year. He spoke to Islanders about Parks Canada and its National Marine Conservation Areas mandate.
